in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too
indicated is to do the tax reform that broadens the base and includes more taxpayers along the way for the question that david asked earlier that cells in the deductions and exclusions and then reduces tax rates. you can do it and make it simpler so they don't have to have a feeling account to do that. .. >> people who have made investment decisions based upon the tax code, and to just all the sudden change it would be unfair. however, if people want a simple tax code with fewer deductions or no deductions whatsoever and fill it out on one sheet of paper, multiply it by whatever the tax rate is, let the taxpayers decide. this is an idea i've advocated for many years. it's really what hong kong has done, and many of the people in hong kong with the freedom to choose flat tax went to the flat tax. for businesses, right now, our federal government imposes the worst in the world, 35% tax on job creating businesses in our country. the average is 25%. i advocate reducing it to 20% because i think america should be better than average. doing that will help create over 500,000 jobs a year.
growth. if you have taxes going up in the united states and expenditures going down ultimately that has to happen if you are going to solve that math problem in a slow growth while. >> at the same in europe and the same everywhere. we all grew up with spending more money. we only have to do two things, spend more money to charge of the economy and spend less money in order to shrink the deficit. all goes to show whether you're a country or a company is when you get in trouble here options are reduced. and so this is not easy and of course the options have been reduced. you can't go out and have another stimulus and look at the consequences to the balance sheet as a result of what that will be. what you are going to have to do i think is you are going to have to not shrink -- not push austerity in the near term because that is the fiscal cliff then you will have to keep going on certain things and not the stimulus but not take away the punch bowl within the near term but you are going to have to convince the market and the lenders and galvanize the country that in the longer term you are
. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia are looking trying to get some form of assembly. it is a toxic mix. >> imagine that there will be pressure on markets as this they think unfolds. we're also counting down to the wire here of course in the presidential election. and joining us on the set, bill richardson, former governor of new mexico. you're in town for the u.n. >> that's right. i was with a group of democrats and republicans yesterday at the
are facing having to deal with spending cuts and tax increases at the end of the year. is so much of that already baked in that who wins november doesn't matter so much? >> yeah, i think there is some truth to that, but i do think the market at least in a knee-jerk fashion, if you were to get a republican sweep, i think there will be this negative reaction in the treasury market that there will be a short honeymoon period where the expectation will be things will get done, we will see perhaps some uncertainty removed. when you remove uncertainty, that's not good for treasuries. dagen: not by any stretch of the imagination. in terms of what you have seen happening in the ten year, how much does the federal reserve get credit for that and what it is going to undertake because again you have charles plosser of one of the fed banks kind of shooting down what the central bank is doing? >> you know, i mean it is interesting, if you talk i think to chairman bernanke, he will tell you that the fed has played a role in bringing treasury rates down, but, you know, i think it is more of a sa
no matter what. stuart: recent figures showed the number of people not paying federal income tax has spiked under president obama. 47% is a legitimate figure. and the latest fox news poll shows voters are fed up. when asked if all americans should be required to pay some kind of federal income tax, 79%, yes, they should. and joining us with americans for tax reform, maddie go through it for me fast. how did the spike happen? i believe there was a spike in the number of people not paying any federal income tax at all. >> right, we've got romney talking about this and the media saying that this is, you know, him insulting, inelegant, a problem talking about it, what it is a referendum on obama policies and the state of the economy. what we've seen are incomes falling and people have less income due to paying taxes on and getting more he deduction and less tax income liability. ahead of that, too, though, we've seen a lot more complexity introduced into the tax code, we've got deductions, if you fill out your own 1040 how difficult it is if you're not taking the standard deduction, what your t
are paying in taxes right now, it's got to be better than this. 75% is now what the wealthiest citizens in france have to pay their government. that is, thank you, to the country's socialist president. there he is. he looks so happy, doesn't he? how would you feel about giving 75% of your income to uncle sam? for now that insane tax rate is staying on the other side of the pond. i don't know, are we next? joining me for more on this, chief economist brian wesbury. brian, great to have you back on the show and i just fear that there are folks in washington who look at this and say, now, that french thinking, they are thinking right. scary, right? >> yes. we know they like a lot of things that the french like. big government. big spending. big entitlement programs. and this is the last gasp. i call this paul krugman's alamo. i guess if you're going to talk european we have to say it is the waterloo, right? melissa: right. >> we spent all the money. we can't afford it. now we'll tack, we're going to confiscate people's income to try to pay for all of this. what they will do is destroy thei

of canada to warrant is really a tax on the ground? >> the more important question, paul, is that isn't the red line in the minds of the israeli? canada has been consistent in saying that we continue to encourage the international community, the united nations, to keep the pressure on the iranian regime, to pursue sanctions, to pursue them -- diplomatic pressure where and when we have the opportunity. unfortunately, those opportunities are becoming less and less obvious. they are less and less effective. the preferred option always will be and remains these alternatives to keeping the pressure on on iran to bring about more acceptable behavior. trying to shift to the attitude of this regime and their leadership has proven to be enormous the challenging. >> my question was do you or do you not endorsed the prime minister of israel's red line. >> the israelis are going to make their own decisions. they will consult with their allies. they will continue to signal clearly their alarm over the nuclear ambitions of iran. we will continue to work with them, but these are sovereign decisions.
